DNA Transcription

  • The word transcribe means “to copy”. During transcription, the genetic information code is copied into a single strand of mRNA. mRNA is known as “messenger” RNA because it carries the DNA code or message out of the nucleus and into the cytoplasm.

  • DNA cannot travel out of the nucleus but RNA can.

  • RNA contains the base Uracil instead of Thymine.


Transcription activity

Transcription Activity:

Transcribe the DNA strand on your handout into a strand of mRNA.

REMEMBER: Uracil is in a RNA strand instead of Thymine.

Example:

DNA: TACACGATT

mRNA: AUGUGCUAA


Translation

Translation

  • In order for translation to begin, mRNA must first attach itself to a ribosome which is found in the cytoplasm of a cell. The information in mRNA is organized into three-letter blocks called codons. Codons are like words of the RNA message.


Codon activity

Codon Activity

  • Organize your mRNA into three letter blocks called codons.

  • Example:

  • mRNA: AUGUGCUAAG

  • AUG UGC UAC

Three letter blocks = codons


Codons

Codons

  • Each codon codes for a specific amino acid in the protein chain. tRNA (transfer) matches a particular codon to a particular amino acid. Amino acids are joined together in the correct sequence to form a protein chain.


How do i read a codon chart

How do I read a Codon chart?

  • “First letter” represents the first letter of a codon. Example: AUG

  • “Second letter” represents the second letter of a codon. Example: AUG

  • “Third letter” represents the third letter of a codon. Example: AUG

  • The amino acid coded for the codon AUG is methionine.

It’s your turn to practice using the codon chart! Identify the amino acids represented by the codons on your handout.
